The restaurant was pretty busy the day that we went, typical for a Sunday evening in Puerto Rico. We love eating out with our friends and families on Sundays. What it was supposed to be a great time with friends turned into the most horrible service I have EVER received in my life. For starters, we waited quite a long... More

I ate here twice while staying in a house across the street. I had a warm friendly welcome from Luis, the proprietor, when I walked in late the first evening, and he greeted me like a brother the 2nd time. I ate a delicious "black " paella -- calimari & tender baby octopi cooked in their ink. I also had... More

Gave the place a second chance since we were deceived the first time. Their location allows for a great oceanfront view plus if lucky will see surfers doing their best. The atmosphere is casual and having some drinks in their deck is fun. The restaurant cooking needs to improve for the order took over 45 minutes, the "tostones" were dark... More

Still one of my favorites on the north coast. Loved the mahi mahi mofongo which was superb. And of course the coquito tres leche is absolutely DELICIOSO!!!! Service was on point, as well.

I had the skirt steak and it was cooked perfectly with delicious seasonings. My friends had the stuffed salmon and they said it tasted great.

Surely a great find in Arecibo! If you love the surf and ocean - dine outside - but realize this is the tropics and the flies like to investigate your tasty meal. Some found this a bother. The food was very good and the portions were large. We did wait quite a while for our food, but the cocktails kept... More

A terrific find on our way back from a visit to the Arecibo Observatory. Great server and wonderful setting. Plentiful drinks and tasty seafood. Paella was good but not outstanding and the shrimp and fish dishes a bit overdone. But, all in all, a good stop!

This time, I've try something different , unfortunately my food selection... More

One of the nicer (and classier) restaurant options in the Islote section of Arecibo, Salitre is a good option for a romantic dinner or special event (there was a wedding party at the restaurant during our meal). Offering a classic Puerto Rican cuisine on the menu, the food is not mind-blowing but is of good quality and will not disappoint... More
